The rise of the Toluid dynasty within the Mongol empire didn't stabilize the realm. The defeat at Ain Jalut and the death of Mongke almost immediately ignited two civil wars: In Mongolia, Ariq took the power and declared war on the presumed heir Kublai, while another conflict broke out between the Golden Horde of Berke and Hulagu's Ilkhanate. The civil wars continued for years and effectively divided the empire of Genghis Khan into 4 states. Moreover the conquest of China was still not finalized and the Mongols would have to fight against the final remnants of the Song dynasty at the battle of Yamen.
